•<[ TEACHER VACANCIES ]>• August 2019
Phew! It’s tough out there.
The education sector and teachers are sttrreettcchheedd... its an uncomfortable place to be at times, trying to stand out in the sea of job vacancies. It can be difficult not to fall into the trap of “competing” against others in the same waka, to keep our resolve as we continue our search to find the best for our tamariki and whanau but we will continue to push the boundaries and lift the bar.
We are a community based, not-for-profit service. An amazing, strong, unique anomaly out there doing our bit for excellence in early childhood education in Aotearoa and we are looking for a couple more equally amazing people to join us.
We invite applications from both in-training and certified teachers.
We are a genuinely child centred, relationship focused service, where our playgrounds are bigger than our car parks and our frameworks encourage creativity not cookie cutter outcomes.
Over 91% of our teachers are qualified.
Kaiako are supported by a Centre Manager, Curriculum Leaders, Team Leaders and Admin team freeing teachers up to do just that, teach.
We provide four hours per week non-contact and invest heavily in professional development and personal capacity building.
You must possess the ability to pivot, to take ownership of our programmes, to find the magic in the smallest of moments.
If this sounds like somewhere you’d like to grow and contribute to, we’d love to hear from you. (Actual love).
Please contact Alison Angel at email@example.com for more information.
We also have vacancies for the following positions:
We are in need of some super star relievers (unqualified and qualified) to compliment our teaching teams here at Massey Child Care Centre.
This is a casual on-call employment arrangement allowing flexibility for both you and us.
As a reliever, you would be an integral part of the success of our day-to-day operations. You would need to be highly motivated, have outstanding communication skills, enjoy working alongside children and excited to learn new skills and grow understandings while working amongst supportive and innovative teaching teams.
We have four sections, working with children aged birth to 6 years old, so plenty of opportunity to work across our different centres and age groups. We have 35 permanent staff and cater for over 200 families so no two days will ever be the same.
Experience is preferred, but not essential. Passion however is a must.
All relievers are required to give permission for a NZ Police check and this process can take up to 4 weeks to complete. Only once this is done can you be become available for relieving work.
Applicants for this position should have NZ residency or a valid NZ work visa.
If this sounds like something you may be interested in or know someone who would be perfect for the job, please contact the Centre on 06-280 2763 or firstname.lastname@example.org

Expressions of interest can be made by completing a form and uploading your CV. We will hold your information on file and as soon as a position matching your area of interest becomes vacant, we will send you details of the vacancy.
Alternatively, you’re welcome to contact the Centre Manager by email email@example.com or by telephone: 06 2802763
Our community of practice requires teachers and educators to engage in an evolving spiral of professional and personal development where pedagogy is refined and new ideas, theories and innovations are explored. Through informed interactions, research and professional dialogue, teachers determine the best possible solutions to enhance their practice and children’s learning, and support the development of section goals and objectives.
We actively encourage staff to seek further knowledge through professional enquiry, research, professional development workshops, conferences, seminars, mentoring, and self reflection. We provide a generous training and development budget to assist individuals and parallel teams to support their learning and development.
Once a year a teacher-only day is organised where new ideas are explored, and teachers collectively and individually reflect on and refine practice.
